36 8/20/2019 11:11:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Bottom part of my message got cut off.

I hope that made sense. I will send place a file in the DropBox to show the current position labelled BM5_Turn1_USA_action5_awaiting_outcome_of_USSR event.vlog

PS I have said no advance in PoG so it is your move there in case you missed it.
35 8/20/2019 11:09:00 PM Turn 1 US Message Sorry for the Confusion, let me relate the history state of play.
Up until USSR4 Asia Scoring (Both) everything was fine.

Then in USA4, I played De-Stalinization* (USSR) see journal reference 24.
Then I subsequently changed my mind and played Nasser* (USSR) for my USA4. However instead of returning De-Stalinization* (USSR) back to my hand, I moved it from the permanently removed set of cards to the discarded cards see journal reference 25.
Then when coming to my USA5, I realised De-Stalinization* (USSR) was not back to my hand. So I moved it from the discard pile back into my hand
journal reference 28.
Then for my USA5 I played De-Stalinization* (USSR) for OPs which triggers the USSR event. However the phasing player may choose whether the event or OPs takes place first. I choose the USSR event to take place first,
ie allowing you to relocate up to four USSR Influence points to non-US controlled countries. No more than two points may be placed in the same country.

However instead of carrying out the USSR event, you seem to have discarded a card, the Suez Crisis* (USSR) which you do not need to do.

I hope that made sense. I will send place a file in the DropBox to show the current position labelled BM5_Turn1_USA_action5_awaiting_outcome_of_USSR event.vlog
34 8/20/2019 4:07:00 PM Turn 1 USSR Message sorry, I'm a little confused as well can we disregard my move and back up to your last correct file returning cards to proper player hands?

basically I played card number 33 for ops

you stated I wasn't allowed to play this card as it should be in your hand

I played another 3 ops card to do the same ops but I played the wrong one as I did not want to trigger usa event.

I then returned this card to my hand and played another 3ops card for ops with ussr event.

so its confusing, return the game to your last good move and I will start over

sorry
